  • > Oscar Marzaroli
1933 - 1988
Oscar Marzaroli was of Italian birth and arrived in Scotland in 1935, aged 2. He attended Glasgow School of Art for a short period and undertook an apprenticeship as a photo journalist in Europe and London before returning to Glasgow in 1959. His livelihood was as a film-maker and alongside this he recorded Glasgow's evolution from being the second city of the empire in the 19th century through urban decay to the urban regeneration of the 1960s. He took the city's workers, its street life, shipyards and steelworks and its children and the study of childhood as his subject.
